Valentine’s day, celebration of love, is nearing. Kids and elders enjoy this special occasion. Yet another time to show your love to the near and dear. Red is the most prominent color – red roses, red heart shaped balloons, red greeting cards etc. I plan to post some valentine recipes during this festive time.
This recipe is a fusion of traditional and contemporary desserts. Phirni is a popular indian dessert. You can express your love with this fun, yummy dessert.
